AirRanger™ Whole-House Polarized-Media Electronic Air Cleaner
An AirRanger™ air filter installs into existing HVAC system filter racks and turns your unit into a whole-house air cleaner. The AirRanger™ traps the smallest sub-micron particles in addition to airborne pathogens, particles, dust, pollen, dirt, smoke, and pet dander so you can breathe cleaner, healthier air inside your home.

Gold Star Services will provide upfront pricing and 100% satisfaction guaranteed!
Efficient Air Filtering
- The AirRanger™ is 97% efficient at capturing particles from breathable air, particles as small as .3 microns (that is 0.000039 of an inch!).
- Efficiency increases as the media fibers load. The 3% that pass through the air cleaner are primed to be captured as polarized masses the next trip through the duct system. Very small masses, but a mass nonetheless.
- A polarized media air cleaner is highly beneficial to a home since continually circulating indoor air cannot experience the benefit of purification through the sun, wind, rain, or lightening.
Air Quality in Homes Today
The more energy-efficient homes have become, the more indoor air pollution is being trapped within. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) reports that indoor air pollution is ten times higher than that of outside air. Many items intentionally introduced to the home cause increased indoor air pollution. Deodorizers, cleaning chemicals, disinfectant sprays, and even the materials used in building the home can affect its air quality.
The air circulating through a home is packed full of particles that can be traced back to many asthma issues and allergies. A dust mite allergy can cause increased sneezing, a runny nose, and difficulty breathing. Millions of these troublesome particles can be found in a single cubic foot of indoor air.
Furnaces can move over 1 million cubic feet of air through a home each day. That is a lot of air with a lot of particles. Dust particles can include pet dander, skin flakes, dust mite waste, hair, smoke, pollen, and even insect parts!
In addition to moisture, mold needs a food source. Some of the particles circulating through a home meet that food source need for mold. Removing these particles with better HVAC filters is a simple proactive approach to managing mold issues.
Benefits of AirRanger™ HVAC Filters
While a regular air filter will catch large particles flowing through the ducts, protecting the HVAC system, they do not catch the small airborne particles the home’s occupants are breathing in. A media filter catches a great majority of these small airborne contaminants. The polarized media air cleaner is designed to be installed right into the filter tracks of the existing current centralized HVAC system. No expensive additions to ductwork are necessary. The AirRanger™ HVAC filters are designed to help protect heating and air conditioning systems from unnecessary aging and repair bills due to foreign particles entering the unit.
It is not required that the filter components be washed. The disposable fiber media pads are easily changed. It only takes a few minutes to complete the task.
The media pads need to be changed on a consistent basis. This is usually necessary every 3 to 4 months. However, pets and/or smokers in the household may increase the frequency of the media pad replacement schedule.
A low static pressure drop at the filter point lets the blower run efficiently. The power consumption used by the media air cleaner is comparable to that of a 40-watt light bulb. A well-maintained heating and cooling system is likely to result in lower utility bills. When an HVAC unit and ductwork are clean, the system doesn’t have to work as hard to heat or cool the environment.
Additional Methods for Improving Indoor Air Quality
While a whole-home air cleaner is the best way to clean the air in your home, achieving the freshest air possible starts with limiting pollution. Many people inadvertently introduce pollutants and contaminants that undermine their air quality, and inadequate dust control only exacerbates the situation because dust traps those toxins and reemits them over time. Household cleaners, deodorizers, and household plants are all common sources of indoor air pollution. Dust your home often and use a vacuum with a HEPA filter. Check your HVAC filters on a monthly basis, and make sure to change them as needed. Frequent replacement of your HVAC filters may indicate a dust problem. Invest in a whole-house air cleaner, such as the AirRanger system. Schedule seasonal HVAC tune-ups and duct cleaning every three to five years. Also, consider investing in additional indoor air quality equipment, such as air scrubbers, dehumidifiers, and humidifiers.
Air scrubbers were originally designed for use aboard the International Space Station and were so effective that they have since been tailored for residential use. This technology emulates natural molecular scrubbing and is able to eliminate many different indoor air pollutants and contaminants.
UV-C is a particular type of ultraviolet light that is effective at eliminating both airborne and surface contaminants. It’s so effective, in fact, that hospitals throughout the world use it for sanitization. A home air purifier with a UV-C component sanitizes your air by eliminating bacteria, viruses, and more.
Relative humidity is a key factor in indoor air quality as well. Dry air is prevalent in winter. It can lead to respiratory irritation even in healthy people and can exacerbate asthma and other respiratory conditions. A humidifier allows you to maintain optimal humidity in the home and avoid those negative health effects. It also makes your heating system more efficient in both the short and long term.
Humidity that is too high is an indoor air quality issue as well. While your air conditioner does remove some moisture, it usually cannot keep up with the humid temperatures of summer. By maintaining optimal humidity in the cooling season, you make your home environment less prone to bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and dust mites. You also make your AC system more efficient.
